How To Enable Auto-Scrolling In Android

[Automate Smartphone Scrolling With This App]

Most apps are designed for Portrait Mode, given the fact that most phones are designed that way. This means endless pages worth of scrolling up and down, just to see all the content. To make this process a lot less time consuming, developer Quadban Youssef has build a special app called Kinetic Scroll, which automates the scrolling process, thereby making browsing a lot easier.

The app features two and three finger swipe gestures, which let you scroll down the page automatically (two finger) as well as jump back up to the top (three fingers).

While this seems exciting for almost every user who has ever used an android phone, it still caters to a limited market, since in order to install this app, your phone needs to be rooted. So if you don’t belong to the rooted community, no need to scroll further.

For the lucky few who do own a rooted device, go ahead and follow the instructions:

  1. Download and install theĀ Kinetic Scroll app.
  2. Open the app and enable the “Start Service” button.
  3. Grant the app “Superuser Access” when it asks for it.
  4. To make sure that the gestures remain active no matter what, enable the “Persistent Activation” option.
  5. Tap the three-dot menu at the top right corner to go to the “Settings” menu.
  6. Modify the different gestures, as well as their speed to your personal preference.

Once done, you are set to use these gestures on any app you like, making your browsing experience hassle free. If you can think of any apps that you use which could possibly have conflict with the multiple finger gestures of Kinetic scroll, then you can follow these additional steps to remove those apps from the app list:

  1. Tap the + button at the bottom right corner.
  2. Press the “Go To Settings” button.
  3. Select the “Kinetic Scroll” button to toggle the switch present at the top.
  4. Press “OK” to activate the accessibility plugin.
  5. Go back to the app and tap the + button again.
  6. Select any and all apps that you think might conflict with the gestures.
  7. Press “OK”. Now you can access these apps from the main menu and set custom options for them.

Now, you know how to enable and disable different scrolling options for different apps. Go ahead and have fun tweaking with them.
